A number of classical writers refer to the use of square enclosures for banquets and ceremonial feasting. While the sociological and political aspects of such features were largely studied, in particular for the first iron age, the archaeological evidences for the La Tène period remain largely unknown. Following criteria are used to identify feasting remains : rich deposits of animal bones, wine amphorae and drinking ceramics, presence of imported or indigenous metalwork such as cauldrons, buckets, grills, quern stones or large storage vessels,
used for the collective preparation and serving of drinks and foods. This paper refers more specifically to the physical space devoted to ceremonial feasting and the different contexts used for - sanctuaries, isolated enclosures, enclosures associated with rural settlements, ditches with rich deposits of amphorae and Viereckschanzcn are briefly discussed with reference to examples. It concludes by making some observations on the roles that ceremonial and feasting enclosures played for the Societies of the La Tène period.
